My Dad said that I started exhibiting respiratory and sinus flu symptoms as an infant, but they got worse around my eighth birthday.
At that age my pediatrician prescribed a liquid albuterol treatment, which happens to be the medicine in the asthma inhalers that one would use in the same context.
It helps lower inflammation in the lungs, thus opening up the airwaves. The syrup tasted something like greens and I’ll never forget it, because I had to take monthly doses for a number of years. As soon as I was the appropriate age to use one correctly, my healthcare worker switched me to an inhaler and also told me to use nasal spray regularly for pollen irritations. At the time we were living up north where the Fall plagued us with fallen leaves that would turn to mold on the ground. Naturally, the spores would aggravate my allergy symptoms greatly. By Spring, the pollen from the trees and plants would have a fairly similar effect. It shouldn’t alarm me that I’m getting flu symptoms whenever I vape or smoke cannabis flower products. Marijuana flowers are plants just like the others that aggravate my pollen irritations so much. On top of that, if the marijuana flowers happen to be grown outdoors or in green houses, they likely have dust, pollen, and fungal spores on them from being exposed to varying amounts of outdoor air. These particles will be trapped to the cannabis flower buds and will entirely have zero effect on a pressing portion of people, but those like me with brutal pollen irritations will certainly feel the difference. That’s ultimately the reason why I have to be so cautious about where I get my marijuana products.
